One of the most iconic sites of Wudaokou is the corner-curling queue for the Date Cake King's date cake. As far as cakewalks go, this is a lengthy one — expect to wait up to an hour. If you manage to see it through, your reward is 750g (that is your only option) of one of the most deliciously moist and steamy date cakes in the city. And how much for all that cake? 10RMB. That's how much. It's advertised as 10RMB for 500g with a bonus free 250. Don't bother asking why, there's a long line of people behind you.
Note: There is another location of Date Cake King in Wudaokou at Lotus Building.
